Request for 256 ANSI Color Support

Hello VanDyke support,

I've noticed you only have partial support for ANSI color covering the first 16 colors under "Linux" or "ANSI" Terminal Emulation and "ANSI" Color Mode in your Beta 8.7.0 (x64 build 2109).

Would it be possible to extend support to include the 256 ANSI Colors.

As an example this python script can be used to see how ANSI colors from 16 to 255 are not supported by SecureCRT but they are supported in actual Linux (or linux based) terminals:

Can this be added as a feature request for future releases?

Thanks

Hi nirvana80,

What are the results when the emulation is Xterm?

Linux as an emulation in SecureCRT is designed to emulate the Linux *console*, which is different from what you get in a GUI/X environment. If connecting to Linux remotes, you should be using Xterm emulation. It's what the built-in Terminal application uses. Note that an emulation change requires a disconnect/reconnect.

Smile It works with Xterm and True Color

Thanks for your help Brenda.

Using Xterm actually makes a lot more sense

Using Emulation Terminal: "Xterm" and Color Mode: "ANSI with 256color" doesn't work.

Using Emulation Terminal:"Xterm" and Color Mode: "True Color" works perfectly.

Hi nirvana80,

What do you mean by "doesn't work"?

Could you post some side-by-side screenshots of how you think it should look?
